The Shiba Inu [SHIB] community was ecstatic following the news of ‘SHIB: The Metaverse’. This virtual space is expected to entail a whopping 100,595 plots of land and 4 different districts. The network even rolled out an official website for its native tokens. As the Shib Army was celebrating this launch, the co-founder of the OG meme crypto, Dogecoin [DOGE] criticized this update.

Dogecoin co-founder Billy Markus took to Twitter and posed a question before the Shib network. Markus outrightly asked how the creation of a metaverse and putting ‘fake land’ on sale aid in the utility of the firm.

It will be impossible to avert the rise of the Metaverse. With practically every major corporation venturing into the digital realm, many individuals believe that the metaverse is the way of the future. The above tweet from the Dogecoin co-founder, however, has the community wondering if Markus is into the metaverse.

Further pointing out why he would be “annoyed” if he were a SHIB holder, he tweeted,

“I mean whatever if people wanna give the devs even more money go ahead but if I was a shib holder I would be annoyed. 100000 land at .2-1 eth each => they are raising 100-300 million additional dollars beyond what they’ve already made from making Shiba.

hope it’s all worth it. good luck, people.”

Dogecoin co-founder has got a solution too

After calling out Shiba Inu devs for pocketing money through the upcoming project, Markus schooled them about what could be done. He suggested that devs that are currently working on the network should formulate projects that would aid Shiba Inu and not themselves. He added,

“shib devs working on shib should do projects to help shib, not give themselves 100-300 million additional dollars from shib holders.”

Just like how Bitcoin [BTC] paved the way for the emergence of several other cryptocurrencies. Dogecoin ticked off the meme coin revolution. Shiba Inu, not only managed to amass immense popularity but has even come close to beating DOGE itself in terms of market cap. Nevertheless, Dogecoin continues to stay ahead of Shiba Inu.

During press time, Dogecoin and Shiba Inu were bagging daily gains of 1.61 percent and 2.22 percent respectively.
